I've been looking around at some laptops and have narrowed it down to these two - a Dell XPS Gen 2 and a Mesh Ultima Pro.
Have been reading and have read that there won't be much power in the Mesh Ultima due to it using more desktop type parts and the battery will be drained with all the fans going etc. While the XPS 2 is supposed to be made of mobile components.
One thing about the processor...the XPS 2 has a centrino 2ghz while the Ultima has a 3.4ghz Pentium 4. Now looking at that in writing makes me see the Ultima as having the MAJOR lead in processing power, is this correct or am I missing something here?
How easy is it to upgrade laptops these days? It's been the reason I've always steered clear. If I want to update my PC to be future proof, I want to be able to put stuff in. Say i wanted a new processor or something, could I shove that in the laptop with relative ease?
On the subject of upgrading...the laptops I'm looking at come with PCI express graphics cards. I know a great feature of PCI express is the combination of two video cards at the same time, is this possible in laptops, or the two I meantioned?
If anyone knows anything about laptops or about the models I listed I'd be grateful for your advice, thanks in advance :-)
By the way, is it wise selecting someone with zero feedback with such an expensive item?

Even better, when you are out and about it could probably double as a portable cooker.
